Does protein always make wet hair feel straw-like?
Whenever I do a protein treatment, or just use a protein rich conditioner, my hair feels really rough and tangly as soon as I rinse it out. However, once it dries my hair is awesome! Soft, shiny, and just really, really happy. The exact opposite happens with oil rich conditioners, plenty of slip but my hair dries to a poofy, dry mess. Is this normal or am I the only one where the condition of my wet hair does not reflect the condition of my dry hair at all?
